Hi there...I can understand your concern. It would have been better if you had posted a photo of the lesion. What you are describing could be furuncle, abscess, cellulitis, pyoderma gangrenosum, herpes zoster, etc. Without detailed clinical examination and history taking it is very difficult to diagnose. So kindly consult a nearby dermatologist for further evaluation.
